, not shifting the costs as paul ryan is suggesting. he left pretty confident with the solid commitment to the middle class that he expressed in his campaign, and the solid commitment to revenue as part of the budget deal. he gave us confidence, i would say. even though some of these things are going to be raised by the republicans we have to evaluate them if over all it's a solid deal for the middle class. we're not going to chase a bad deal. >> john: that's great to hear. of course the president has been vocal about a possible willingness to support a reform. but you congressman welsh you have a proposal that will save $156 billion over the next ten years. >> right now medicare has great benefit and drug benefit program part d. we pay retail prices even though we buy wholesale. if we purchased drugs like we do in the v.a. or medicare, we would save taxpayers $156 billion a year. right now in medicare if we buy a certain drug, and buy that same drug in the medicaid or v.a. program, we would pay 60% less. so we're buying wholesale and paying retail. and obviously that makes no sense. it

to the business of the day. you sit on the house budget committee, and you're chairman. paul ryan came out this week with the day before the president met with the republican caucus with his budget for 2014 which looks a lot like the budget for 2013 which looked a lot like the budget for 2012. >> except for -- >> bill: it's worse? >> it's worse. it's more cynical than the prior budgets because what it did was, they spent all last year campaigning against the affordable care act. and about slashing money out of medicare. >> that's been actually their mantra for two elections now. well, in the budget, he repeals the law, affordable care all of the provisions of the law, keeps the $700,000,000,000 worth of save savings, keeps the trillion dollars worth of taxes under affordable care act. >> that's what makes this budget come close to balancing in 10 years. so all of the things he campaigned against, he put in his budget. >> uh-huh. >> then said we are going to take the money out of medicare and we are going to tax you but we are not going to give you the benefit
? we should make that promise, it is doable. even paul ryan whose budget did not balance the budget comes out with one that does. >> how to make it personal? joe made this case and we wrote articles about this. during the sequestration battle, obama gave his speech about the horrific sequestration and how bad it was. he was surrounded by the village people. he had a person behind him with a hard hat and make an native american. when john boehner came out he had a doomsday clock behind him, counting down the days to the sequester. he wanted to point the blame to obama. we should take credit for this. for the first time we're going to sort of cut spending at the federal level and we're going to talk a how that will help people in the long run. >> one quick thing. i ask people at cpac what they think about the second obama term and the real challenge for conservatives is you're dealing with a democratic senate and democratic white house. it is easy to propose a 10 year balanced budget like the conservatives are doing in the house but that is not going to be political reality in the sho

we got the house republican budget from paul ryan, which balanced the budget over ten years, with all spending cuts. today we got the senate democrat's budget from patty murray, chairman of the budget committee. hers doesn't balance the budget, but reduces the deficit over a ten-year period, using both tax increases and spending cuts. and she said it's up to the american people to pick an approach. >> they will let us know whether they want us to go back down the path of the trickle down policies that decimated the middle class and threw our economy into a tailspin, or if they would prefer the approach we've seen has worked before. tackle our deficit responsibly, reinvest in our middle class, build a strong foundation for growth, and restore the promise. >> but, of course, appealing to public opinion is part of the outside game, and that's only one aspect of this fight. there's also the inside game, because president obama went up to the hill today to continue his outreach to members of congress. he spoke to the house republican caucus. afterwards, speaker john boehner did announce a
? >> well, first of all, luke, paul ryan has an important job to do which is to understand the numbers, understand where we're at with our debt and with our spending issues. look, we are not losing the issues on the math. we're not losing the issues on spending and debt and jobs and the economy. those are total winners for us. what we found in the election is while we're winning the arguments on spending and math, we're losing sort of this emotional cultural vote out there in presidential elections. and it didn't just happen overnight, luke. i mean the fact is our parties have a tough time over the last 24 years winning decisive presidential elections. and it's our job as a party to get to the bottom of why that is. and that's what we're trying to do. so, you know -- >> okay. let's talk about that emotional cultural vote. your predecessor said this this morning on "morning joe" about the issues you have in minority community. >> how does he reconcile his agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist? you can show up any time. it'
not going to be able to get a deal. >> paul ryan today put forward his budget and he says he's challenging you to come forward with a budget that reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no, we're not going to balance the budget in ten years because if you look at what he does is you have to voucherize medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue. if we've controlled spending and we've got a smart entitlement package, then potentially what you have is balance but it's not balance on the backs of, you know, the poor, the elderly, students who need student loan, family who've got disabled kids. >> you've been taking a lot of heat for the cancellation of the white house tours. the secret service says it costs $74,000 a week. was canceling them really necessary? >> i have to say this was not a decision that went up to the white house but what the secret service explained to us
chairman paul ryan. most of that distinction was highlighted in the clip you just played. while both sides sort of maintain lower deficit numbers, they go about it in a different way. the democrats tried to vote raise new revenue. they struck the finance committee to come up with almost $1 trillion in tax reform package versus all the cuts on the spending side of the ledger on the house republican plan. so that is the debate we have been having for years and it is the debate we will keep having as these two budgets look to move to the course of their respective chambers next week. host: niels, what is new about what democrats are proposing? have we seen a lot of this comes from democrats before? guest: we're not talking about anything that is particularly novel. because we have not seen the senate to go through the formal process of drafting a budget resolution, holding a budget markup, and go to the floor with a budget resolution and pass a budget resolution in several years now, it is sort of putting pen to paper in a different way than we have seen the senate democrats do it lately. a l
